Energy Cookies


I have seen a few different versions of these cookies.  They are similar to "energy bites" that are made with peanut butter and seeds, however, these DO require baking.  I have modified a few different recipes and this is what I came up with.  These cookies make great pre or post-workout snacks.  This recipe makes 12 cookies.  Each cookie contains 72 calories and 6 grams of protein.  Enjoy!

Ingredients:

-2 scoops of vanilla protein powder (I like Sunwarrior vegan)

-1/4 cup PB2 (peanut butter powder)

-1 medium banana (mashed)

-1/4 cup ground flax seeds

-2 Tbsp. of chia seeds

-3 Tbsp. sugar free chocolate chips (Hershey's)

-1 Tbsp. water

In a mixing bowl, mix protein powder, PB2 powder and mashed banana.  Next add ground flax seeds and chia seeds.  Stir together.  Next add water.  Mix in chocolate chips.  Form 1 1/2 Tbsp. sized balls and flatten to cookie shape.  Add any loose chocolate chips on top of cookies before baking.  Bake 9 minutes or until slightly brown at edges.  



Diets Don't Work!


If we put as much time and energy into our long-term weight management goals as we do into “quick-fix, fad diets” we would all be successful!
